Atmel’s AT90SC28880RCFV secure microcontroller (MCU) has been certified as compliant with ICAO’s radio frequency specifications and ISO 14443.
According to Atmel, tests were carried out by independent third party laboratory FIME for ISO 14443 conformity – a test plan that covers 10373-6 test plan for PICCs but goes beyond that scope to better ensure conformity to the 14443 specifications.
In addition, an extended test session at FIME laboratory shows up to 100% interoperability with a list of 32 readers during banking evaluation.
“The FIME reports further illustrate that Atmel satisfies all technical requirements for ePassport and ID applications. The Atmel AT90SC28880RCFV chip provides extended RF capabilities, excellent computational performance and low-power consumption to allow up to 30 MIPS and 1024 RSA computations in 80 ms at 1.5 A/m,” says Jean-Pierre Enguent, application manager for contactless products, Atmel Corporation. “The product targets applications including Extended Access Control within ePassport programs and governmental ID cards. In addition, the Atmel secureAVR(R)-based microcontroller is designed to be Common Criteria EAL5+ certified.”
Atmel’s AT90SC28880RCFV samples are available in DIL packages and dual-interface micromodules.
